Watch Her Grow- 2 Years Old!

  Last week, Q-ball turned two!  She was very excited about her birthday, quickly realizing it was an occasion when even more attention than usual would be showered her way.  When asked how she wanted to celebrate, she replied, "Ride boat."  So, we found one of the closest boat rides and headed that way on birthday morning.  Daddy even treated us to doughnuts!  After returning from the trip, we told Q-ball it was time for her nap.  She looked at us like us like we must be a little confused and said, "me birthday."  I guess you don't have to take naps on your birthday.   That afternoon, we met a few friends at the park and enjoyed some of Q-ball's favorite foods: her Grandma's recipe for rolls combined with Oma's classic pigs-in-a-blanket, mac & cheese, hummus with veggies, strawberries and blueberries, and, of course, cake and ice cream (although she didn't actually eat any cake once the blueberries made it onto her ice cream!)

With Easter and her birthday in the same weekend, Q-ball got her fill of sugar.

As I did at 18 Months, I'll list Q-ball's currently favorite things.
  • Books!
  • Blueberries
  • Oatmeal
  • Ice Cream
  • Larabars and dates
  • Swings at any park
  • Stuffed animals (she really attached to the Easter Bunny and has been very attached to bunny toys the past few days)
  • Balls
  • Anything musical- instruments, singing, listening to music
  • Running around with Daddy
 We are linking up with Vibrant Wanderings.  See what the other kiddos are up to here! 


  1. Oh my goodness, I love that she refused to nap on the grounds that it was her birthday. That girl knows what she's doing! A boat ride sounds amazing, and really it seems like the whole day must have been super special. Happy belated birthday to your amazing two year old! :)

  2. Thank you! I'm am amazed at this age how much they pick up, she loved the attention for her birthday. But, seemed to really know it was a day. After the day was done, she's liked talking about it, but she seems to know that we are not going on a boat ride and sugar fest everyday!
